60. You can keep trying to cram those numbers down everyone's throats all day long.
Ironically you'll probably be amongst the same crew of people that doubt poll numbers that somehow say people disapprove of Obama's job performance or those during the campaign cycle that come out and show him not doing as well as your overconfident belief of how great he is places him in your mind.

The problem is liberals don't want to take the chance of letting a Bachmann or Palin winning so it's Obama or nothing. That's the political reality of the thing right now. Whether or not we have a viable alternative or not doesn't mean we have no right to be dissatisfied with Obama. You're lumping a broken political system where there are no real threats of a serious third party run or even a real primary against a party's incumbent as some sort of proof that liberals would rather just have Obama than an alternative. While he would never have the financial support of the same party elite or corporate sponsors that Obama has, a Bernie Sanders would at least erode some support away from Obama. I'd say the same about Russ Feingold on a national level especially since in WI there's massive buyer's remorse about allowing Russ get swept up in an emotional anger wave election when he hadn't earned dismissal for being a status quo politician.

You don't have to care for my long-winded comments though. Amazingly enough you can skip right over it. Since on this board and in democracy as a whole (hence the message I am trying to get across to Obama as well), we have a right to voice our opinion as well. Like it or not. And clearly people like yourself and many on Obama's crew cannot handle that we're not Bush-like lockstep supporters that find nothing wrong with our dear leader.
